Special Statement

Expires 10:00 PM CST on February 19, 2019
Statement as of 9:18 PM CST on February 19, 2019

... Wintry precipitation occurring this evening...

A mixture of rain, freezing rain, sleet and even a touch of wet
snow is expected into the overnight hours over portions of
southeast Missouri, southern Illinois, southwest Indiana and far
northwest Kentucky. Surface temperatures are running right at, or
slightly above, the freezing mark. These readings should remain
fairly steady through around midnight, then begin a very slow rise
late night.

With temperatures so close to freezing, some icy patches could
develop on roadways, especially untreated roadways and elevated
roads such as bridges and overpasses. Motorists should slow down
and exercise caution, as any icy patches could be very difficult
to see.


142 PM CST Tue Feb 19 2019

... Wintry precipitation possible late today into this evening...

Precipitation will move into southeast Missouri and west Kentucky
by late this afternoon, and continue north this evening into
southern Illinois and southwest Indiana. There may be a brief
period of sleet in west Kentucky and southeast Missouri at onset,
followed by all rain. Some sleet with thunder has been observed
in Tennessee.

This evening, across the rest of southeast Missouri, into southern
Illinois and southwest Indiana, the mixed light wintry
precipitation at onset should turn to a period of wet snow, mixed
with rain. Minor accumulations up to 1 inch cannot be ruled out on
grassy and elevated surfaces. However, Road conditions should
remain good for the most part with temperatures running 32 to 34
degrees. Isolated slick spots cannot be ruled out entirely, so use
